For more than 35 years, COTS has been committed to serving the most vulnerable members of the Detroit community. COTS provides shelter, housing, and support to more than 1,200 people annually – 60 percent of whom are children.
With a rich continuum of programs and services that empower people, COTS is continually committed to creating opportunities to succeed. COTS programs include a family-only emergency shelter, specialized shelter, and support for victims of domestic violence; long-term supportive housing with assistance for addiction, disability or illness; and childcare for infants and toddlers at Bright Beginnings Child Development Center.
COTS offers more than beds – we offer HOPE. Our Passport to Self-Sufficiency™ assists families in reaching their housing, economic, health, education, and career goals through coaching, mentorship, and support as they overcome homelessness and break the cycle of poverty for the next generation and beyond.
COTS doesn’t do this work alone. Partners are the heart of every act of service shown to the families that come through our doors. The generosity of every person, organization or corporation that offers their treasure, talent or time to COTS does support the services that target the root causes of homelessness and foster household stability.
Together, we empower families as they overcome homelessness, eliminate poverty, and work toward self-sufficiency. Together, we Create Opportunities To Succeed.
